A Wind of Change Kites

They’re called Blo-Karts. No engine. No brakes. Just a 40-pound cart with a 13-foot sail. The world record is 126 mph, but 30 to 50 mph is the norm.

See & Do
SkyJump

Jump 640 feet off the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere: Auckland’s Sky Tower. You’ll be hooked to a steel cable, controlled by a giant fan they call “The Decelerator” to ensure you don’t splat onto the concrete below.

See & Do
Vomatron

The tallest, most nauseating Vomatron in the world is located in Kissimmee, FL. The ride gets its design from the centrifuge NASA uses to train astronauts, and it has enough torque to lift 2 fully loaded semis!

Kissimmee, FL 34746

 
See & Do
Zorb Smoky Mountains

Get inside the Zorb -- a ball within a ball, made of super-thin, flexible PVC. Roll down the straightaway at 40 mph, or -- to go a little slower -- take on the zig-zag course.
